Fake feminist Hillary
Fake ass Hillary Clinton is no feminist. From Saturday's "Iraq snapshot:"
Trashy Hillary Clinton could pimp Iraq as a business opportunity.
But the alleged 'feminist' couldn't and wouldn't do a damn thing for Iraqi women.
This is most obvious in the e-mails WikiLeaks published this week.
Melanne Verveer e-mails Hillary on December 11, 2011:
We attempted to raise the issue of women's participation in the Iraq government, in their economy and more broadly when Biden was just in Baghdad. Jeff Feltman was trying to get it into the conversations there.
You will recall the comments of the Iraqi who participated in the NGO meeting with you in Doha about how the door has been closed to women in the government. We have had many discussions with impressive Iraqi women over the last couple years, and to a person they describe their fate as worse now than years ago. Yet without them it will be even harder for Iraq to move forward. To that end, we have been working with post on a action plan along the lines of the National Action Plan on women, peace and security, you will launch next week.
I hope you will find a way to raise the "women's issue" in your discussion tom'w.
And what does the 'great feminist' of all time, the woman with the highest cabinet position in the administration respond:
I raised women's issue w Maliki and Zebari. Can't say either of them seemed interested. But, we'll keep trying -- as always!
What a brave feminist Hillary I'm It For Myself Clinton is.
Verveer, at the time she e-mailed Hillary, was the Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues. She had previously, in the 90s, served as First Lady Hillary's Chief of staff, and, in 2001, she and Hillary created the Vital Voices Global Parternship.
Hillary never used her platform as Secretary of State to publicly encourage Nouri al-Maliki or Hoshyar Zebari (her Iraqi equivalent at the time, Foreign Minister). Nor did she use her platform to publicly shame either man.
She did, however, use her platform to repeatedly praise Zebari -- a man whose actions never warranted much praise at all.
Well, Verveer mentions an upcoming event, right?
To that end, we have been working with post on a action plan along the lines of the National Action Plan on women, peace and security, you will launch next week.
That's a reference to Hillary's December 19, 2011 speech entitled "Remarks on Women, Peace, and Security."
In that speech, she name checks Ireland, Liberia, Egypt, Senegal, Darfur, Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Central African Republic, Afghanistan, Chile, Kosovo, Yemen and Nepal.
But she never mentions Iraq.
In her approximately 4,500 word speech, she never once mentions Iraq.
Helping the women of Iraq didn't, she believed, help her.
And like so many faux feminists, What's In It For Me Hillary has always defined her own self-interest as feminism.
